Re: Freon cooling

said by norwegian:

Try putting up a gas hot water system up at home and then ask the insurance company if they would insure, I bet 99% would say no, a gas fitter needs to sign to off on fitment.

No different.

The gas company here won't even supply gas if it is not installed and tested by a licensed technician. And they have to inspect it. Same with hydro.

The other big problem with this type of cooling is condensation. If you don't have everything that handles the cooled freon completely covered you're only 1 drop away from a blow up. Just look at the condensation that comes from a home A/C unit (especially in high humidity areas) and you'll get the picture

Yep, general public are not allowed to play with rated utilities.
Even your own soldered/bronzed copper plumbing lines in a new house has to pass inspection. Let alone a gas.

Creating something new with a gas as a coolant would require an engineering certificate, not a technician. Little different for standard products and fitting them, but design anything new and an engineering certificate would be required.

I think this at home without lodging the cert at the insurance office would help void any issues if it all went up and the fire unit found house was guttered by Freon.

Don't get me wrong, love seeing anything posted new and they certainly look the part, thanks for the topic. I'm gathering they were put together by techs though; and would love to see the differences in loads/timing/temps etc and the logs created when testing it all out. Youtube to the rescue.

Now that looks like an off the shelf solution to the hot summers.
